Reciting the Joseph Smith story by finding (shooting) the phrases in correct sequence from a jumbled board

AP Elder Wilcox explains the rules of the game to competing companionships
Sisters Veenker and Buhler on the left facing off against Sisters Wu and Black on the right

And they're off and shooting, racing to see which team will complete the correct recitation first!

Add AP Elder Von Trapp

Sisters Kohler and E. Wilson suffer no handicap from a broken, casted arm

But Sisters Griffin and Chapman were so quick to finish that we didn't even get a picture of them shooting!

The final competition entails finding the applicable rule in the white handbook that addresses a questionable situation acted out by the APs
